FBO Partners and Paragon Aviation Group Ink Partnership Agreement

Jan. 30, 2017

FBO Partners, LLC has signed a partnership agreement with the Paragon Aviation Group, to provide additional resources and added value to the member FBOs of the Paragon Network. Under the agreement, FBO Partners becomes the exclusive FBO consultancy to Paragon Aviation Group, and Paragon Network member FBOs receive discounted rates for the expertise provided by FBO Partners.

Of the partnership, Doug Wilson, president of FBO Partners says, “Paragon Aviation Group represents a quality network- a group of strong, independent FBOs able to compete on a level playing field with the institutional FBO chains. There is a resurgence in the industry back towards the independents, and Paragon is on the leading edge of that movement.” Megan Barnes, executive vice president of Paragon Aviation Group, notes “FBO Partners is unlike any offering in the industry today- a professional approach to problem solving that is both intelligent and real-world, and an enormous value to our members.”

Both FBO Partners and Paragon Aviation Group have expanded in recent months. Senior Associates Jamie Wilson and Rikki Altenburg, both former FBO GMs from Washington-Dulles and Casper, Wyo., respectively, joined FBO Partners as 2016 drew to a close, with the latter leading a new customer service training arm of the practice. Similarly, Paragon capped off a year of growth by adding new locations in late last year, including Ross Aviation in White Plains, and Tunica Air Center in Mississippi. “Our two organizations complement each other on many levels, and it’s great to formalize a partnership that strengthens the independent FBO business model,” adds Barnes.
